Living in the Olympiaregion Seefeld: How long have you already been living here or what brought you here? What makes the Olympiaregion so special for you / your family?
It has already been five years since my profession brought me to Leutasch. After over 20 years on Majorca it was a pretty big change but I quickly settled down here, helped by the lovely natural surroundings, the peace and quiet and the varied and challenging work.
Each of our partner-hotels for WSC-athletes in the area is unique: How would you describe the philosophy which brought you to this point and which distinguishes you from other hotels?
The “Xander” has a history which goes back 900 years – even the Emperor Maximilian stayed here overnight many centuries ago. It has been in the hands of Dr. Ennemoser since the end of the Seventies, a man who is a hotelier with heart and soul. Our house stands for personal service and a welcoming atmosphere.
Are there any personal memories of the last FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 1985 that you / your family could share with us? Did this event change or create new ambitions for Nordic ski sport?
Sadly, I can’t say anything here.
What are you looking forward to while hosting the top WSC 2019 athletes in your hotel?
It will be exciting! The atmosphere that these sporting events bring with them is incomparable. And the mix of top athletes and regular guests, amateur sportsmen and -women and fans will make it a special event for all in the hotel.
Do you have a vision or a personal wish for 2019?
Lovely images of a countryside covered in deep snow that spread around the world and make everyone wish that they could experience this idyllic place themselves.
